Hi,
Please let me know if we can validate fields that depend on the value of another field.

For example, I want to validate newAmtbooked and newDate only when submitType equal to 'save'. I am passing submitType value from my jsp and typical values for my submitType are 'save', 'fetch', 'link' etc.. If I pass otherthan 'save' as my submitType, I want to skip the validation.

<field indexedListProperty="newAmtbooked" depends="required,double">
<arg0 key="newAmtbooked"/>
</field>

<field indexedListProperty="newDate" depends="required,date">
<arg0 key="newDate"/>
<var>
<var-name>datePatternStrict</var-name>
<var-value>MM/dd/yyyy</var-value>
</var>
</field>

thanks

You may be able to do this using the "validWhen" rule. See the Struts Validator Guide for details.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
